Birthday and Blogiversary GIVEAWAY

This week is my 29th birthday and my one year blogiversary all rolled into one!

I had no idea that this blog would take over my life when I started it (and I mean that in the best way possible!) I've made such great friends and have never felt more connected to the crafting community! You have inspired, challenged, and encouraged me in so many ways!

As a thank you to all of my faithful followers and readers, I've decided to give away a $15 gift certificate to Starbucks. Because who doesn't love a good beverage?! And because I wish I could take each of you out to coffee and chat with you like the old friends it feels like we already are!

This giveaway is going to work a bit differently. In an effort to get to know YOU better, I'm asking that you link up your favorite blog post in the linky below. It could be a tutorial, a recipe, a picture of your cat wearing pajamas. Whatever it is, I want to get to know you better :).

If you don't have a blog and would still like to enter, feel free to link to your shop!

If you read this blog and don't have a blog or a shop, you can leave me a nice comment about how wonderful I am {wink}.

If you want a second entry, you can spread the word about this lil' giveaway on twitter/facebook with the following: "Link up to win a Starbucks gift card for @yes_teacher 's birthday/blogiversary! http://tiny.cc/0ppnb "

So that's TWO ways to enter: 1) link up your fave blog post/shop/comment flattery, and 2) spread the word and leave a comment with your link!

PLEASE make sure you link your post in the linky, not in the comments ;). If you spread the word on twitter/facebook, leave a comment with the link!

Oh, and you have to be a follower to enter. Because it's my birthday and I said so :)

Giveaway ends 5/11 at 11:59 CST. Winner will be drawn randomly and notified via email/blog/twitter/however I can get a hold of you.

GOOD LUCK!

  5. Hi, Sarah!
    It was hard to find a favorite blog post, I wanted to use the link to my own blog post that features a video. It was very difficult for me to take pictures of myself for my blog. I've grown up/evolved and now I actually posted a video blog. LOL While this isn't my absolutely FAVORITE blog post I think it shows (me anyway) how long I've come in the blogosphere. http://momomod.com/site/article/spring_2011_trend_more_full_skirt_talk/

  6. Yay, I love me some Starbizzles. I don't know if I can call this my favorite blog post, but I think it's silly and it has a photo of tons of Amish dudes building a barn AND mentions Wu-Tang, so really, what more would anyone want?

  8. Okay, here's one of my favorite, relatively recent posts. It's a little bit strange, a little bit funny, and I loved the reaction I got from my readers!
